I am a self-taught artist. I’ve been working as an illustrator since 1979. My first art job was at a firm that painted restaurant décor. The styles and themes changed weekly. After two years there, I went freelance, and haven’t looked back. I began painting movie and video posters and ads for all the major movie companies. Over 1000 jobs for Disney. I am an official Barbie artist for Mattel as well.
I work both traditionally and digitally. I use a Mac and Photoshop for digital work. Traditionally I use oils on illustration board, or canvas and I am equally comfortable using acrylics. I paint many children's books.
My current passion is building Steampunk, and Atomic creations from found objects and home made parts.
I have painted over 50 paintings of angels and fairies, most of which have been published by Hayhouse, for Doreen Virtue projects.
